Well since I have traded in my Rubicon, my grease gun has felt a little left out lately. I have not had the opportunity to crawl under this new truck yet, but does the suspension/steering components require periodic lube or are there poly/Teflon bushings installed on them? I imagine that the steering being that it is elec./hyd. rack & pinion type, that they d/n require any maintenance. U-joints any more are factory sealed unless you install zerk type joints after the factory one's wear out. Thanks in advance for the replies.MADMAC:)

Page 375 and 376 of the owners manual (2017 model attached, 2016 may differ as they added the integrated trailer brake control instruction pages into the 2017 manual somewhere I’m sure, they were missing in the 2016 manual) anyway, those pages show what lube to use on what parts. Page 371 shows the hard use service intervals

Yep, I looked/read the manual a couple of times when I bought this truck and noticed the regular maint. items and even noticed all the filters in this truck. Guess I'll retire my friend the grease gun for the time being. Thanks,MADMAC:rolleyes:
